AT&T scales back muni-WiFi plans in St. Louis

AT&T confirmed that it is pulling back on plans to blanket St. Louis with a muni-WiFi network. Instead, the company will build a WiFi pilot network in downtown by early next year. AT&T, which had planned to build out the network across the entire city within two years, said the primary concern was cost. AT&T engineers couldn't find an inexpensive way to provide power to the network's transmitters that carry the network signal.
